FDA Allows Abbott to Release Some Infant Formula Amid Shortage
Federal regulators have given permission to Abbott Nutrition to release some of its infant formula included in a recent recall to families who desperately need it on a case-by-case basis. The formulas were produced at Abbott's facility in Sturgis, MI, this year and carry a risk of being contaminated, the FDA said. But the company may release products to families "needing urgent, life-sustaining supplies" of certain formulas.
@soumalya The FDA is concerned that the risk of not having certain specialty and metabolic products available could significantly worsen underlying medical conditions and in some cases pose life-threatening risks for infants and individuals who rely on these products
